SuSE, openSUSE A new major release of Novell's community-supported distro openSUSE 11 is now available and can be downloaded from the mirrors. Linux Format has a hands-on look at the new installer, SLAB menu and Compiz Fusion, and weighs up whether the distro can fight competition from Ubuntu and Fedora. Is this the start of a new era for SUSE?

It was definitely an opinion piece. To sum it up:

--review--
The installer tripped me up, I hate the slab menu, yast is a bloated mess, openSuse's only redeeming feature is its 2 year support span. Fedora and Ubuntu are much better because they are revamping some of their stuff.
--/review--

Personally, I like yast and I like the slab menu. I've found openSuse to be a stable, well crafted distro that works quite well for me and I've seen nothing from Fedora or Ubuntu that make me want to switch.

That's the beauty of Linux, you can pick the distro that fits you best.
